louisiana, you can see this storm track stays very dry right here and that pushes all the moisture over the top of this. because of this, we have three areas right now we have really significant flooding going on. one in nashville and the other around the atlanta area, to the southwest of it and this southern missouri area branson towards springfield and flashflood warnings because they have seen well over 12 inches of rain over the last week or so and the nashville area had rain on much to them and interstate 85 to the southwest of atlanta. that's what's very active right now. we also throughout the day stand the chance for severe weather. some storms will be very windy and have hail. i don't think it's a big tornado threat today but anywhere you see this much yellow across oklahoma, the panhandle of texas and across southeastern areas of missouri and parts of arkansas, get ready for severe weather and more rain. i tell you what, alisyn, we don't really change this pattern and below that rain, it's hot and will continue to see heat advisories in effect. will continue to feel like 105,
